2:01 am
i'm laura jarrett. >> i'm christine romans. tuesday, august 25th. 5 a.m. in new york. exactly ten weeks now until the election. republicans open the national convention trying to close the empathy gap. president trump's allies offer a misleading portrayal on his efforts on coronavirus and race pitching trump as a leader, protecting the country from democrats who they falsely claim want to wipe out the suburbs from their radical socialist agenda. as advertised, trump made himself a star of the show twice. the gop put forward two most compelling speakers. nikki hailey and south carolina senator tim scott. >> they argued trump's policies have lifted up a diverse array of american families. they say democrats have gone too far with claims of systemic racism in the u.s. the claims made on the same day
2:02 am
people were protesting the shooting of a black man in wisconsin. trump appeared with workers portraying the president as a leader who quickly confronted coronavirus. cnn's kaitlyn collins is at the white house for us. >> what really emerged from this first night of the republican convention was, one, an attempt to rewrite how president trump and his administration responded to the coronavirus pandemic playing this video portraying it as an aggressive, vigorous response. we had reporting that showed the president was slow to respond to the pandemic, often downplayed it and dismissed it. he seemed to be in denial for what was going on for some time. he put an emphasis on the president's delay of black history. you saw them speaking at the republican convention. >> it hurt my soul to hear the terrible names that people
2:03 am
called donald. the worst one is racist. i think that the president think i've had a 37 year friendship with a racist? people who think that don't know what they're talking about. >> in much of the democratic party it is fashionable to say america is racist. that is a lie. america is not a racist country. this is personal for me. i am the proud daughter of indian immigrants. they came to america and settled in a small southern town. my forewore a turban. my mother wore a sari. i was a brown girl in a black and white world. >> joe biden said if a bla blablack man didn't vote for him they're not truly black. it is joe biden who said poor kids can be just as smart as white kids. and while his words are one
2:04 am
thing, his actions take it to a whole new level. in 1994 biden led the charge on a crime bill that put millions of black americans behind bars. >> of course many polls have shown the president does not have anywhere near close to a wealth of support with those voters. it's not clear if the trump campaign is looking to gain anything this late. i feel they wanted to show diversity in the first night of the president's convention. >> history repeating itself painfully overnight in wisconsin. protestors defying curfew late into the night in response to the police shooting of a black man. officers responding to a separate disturbance call shot jacob blake in the back in front of his three young children.
Check

three buildings are on fire overnight. jacob blake remains in intensive care. >> he was trying to de-escalate another situation when police arrived. cnn spoke to his uncle. >> this is like all the black parents talk about, that phone call you don't want to get, and we got it. so you have to sort of be strong for each other, let your faith lead the way. after talking to his mother, she and my brother are asking people in kenosha, around this nation to protest but protest nonviolently. >> there were protests in other cities yesterday as well, most of them peaceful although an officer was attacked with a cane in san diego. the national guard was called in to keep the peace in kenosha as omar jimenez is on the ground
2:06 am
for us. >> reporter: christine and laura, what you're seeing is one of multiple locations that are burning seen shot in the back seven times by a police officer. what you are seeing came in stark contrast to what we saw over the daytime hours in kenosha and into the evening which were largely peaceful demonstrations in the face of law enforcement. at night fall things got more contentious. police started using some of those crowd dispersal to play loud sounds. the common theme is an expression of anger and frustration over what people feel like has become an all too familiar story playing out in places from across the country not just here in kenosha, wisconsin. christine, laura? >> thank you so much for that.
